“It’s not the load that breaks you down; it’s the way you carry it.” — Lena Horne

Rugged individualism, spiritual pride, or a need to do it yourself, may be causing your load to be heavier than it needs to be.  Don’t be afraid to ask for help.  There is nothing unspiritual about being caught in your human experience and needing help to get things straight.  Remember how good it feels when you can help someone else?  Open up and let someone do that for you!

That’s why Spirit created friends and community… so you can celebrate with each other when things are great and lift each other up when things are not.  Don’t wait until you are happy to be around others or to get involved in mutual support.  Find a prayer partner, get a sangha group. Reach out!  Do it today and discover how much easier it becomes to carry your load along the way!

Reflection:  Where could you ask for help or let someone else support you?  What are you willing to do to reach out?

Affirmation:  I am strong enough to ask for help!  I invite others to support me with the same ease with which I support others.
